Thinking of selling my crafts...

Not sure if I can post here or where to post it... LMK

Hi there mama's,

I wanted some input. I'm thinking of selling my crafts. Right now I made my baby's baby legs, toys and some other things from recycable materials (old tees and fabric scraps) and I also make totes from crocheted or fused plastic (recycled plastic bags). How many of ya'll would be interested and how much would you expect to pay? Here are some pics of some stuff I've done.

I was thinking of having pre-made stuff for sale and then if you want a custom bag and would like to join in the recycling process, you send me your bags (Red if you want a red bag), a tote would use about 40 bags, and no price difference (just shipping to me). Same with the teecycled dresses, You can send me whatever fabric you want. I also make toy banks from formula cans and fabric toys.

What do you think of the concept? No enviromental impact business! Maybe just tape for shipping.

Please send me some feedback! Oh also... suggestions on a name?

I will probably be running the store from my blog, does anyone know if there is anything I'd have to do when I file taxes and what not? Or do you know of any system or how I can keep track of orders or how to get a shopping cart into blogger and what not?? I would appreciate any suggestions or links,

THANKS!

ps... if you have any plstic bags you want to get rid of, LET ME KNOW!

  1. I'm going to be selling my crafts on Etsy, had the shopping cart and everything there - I'll just put a link to my shop on my blog.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
